    Between Jiggers awesome send off drawing last week, and Norwell's suggestion that this weeks FAS be dedicated to the Hero that hot Rodding lost recently, I got really inspired to crank out a piece in tribute to the one and only Norm Grabowski. Hopefully a drawing of a car to pay tribute to a man doesn't seem shallow... it's just that I draw cars...it's what I'm good at ... I think he'd understand :)

    Anyway, this is nowhere near done, but it's gettin there, so i figured I'd throw up a work in progress to get things rollin!. I know it's still missing the flames, but fret not! they will be on it before it's finished. ;)

    Rest in Piece Norm.

    It's Friday (somewhere east of here)....so if ya got a piece inspired by, (or made by?) Norm, throw it up! And of course, all non-Norm related art work's welcome as well.

    I'm gettin in early on this one!
    I should warn you I'm not real good at portraits or caricatures. I thought there would be a lot of 'Kookie' cars,so I wanted too do something different.
    The Henway. hope you like.

    Ride on Norm! RIP

    Nice work so far...Okay - not exactly a Normski but there's a skull inside so I'm going to fake it. I posted this idea a year earlier and recently redid it changing the goon hand to a skeleton hand. I'm at the Hot Rod Reunion this weekend and will be offering litho prints. Yes it's scratchboard but the color was added on press.

    Here's one I had done (I didn't draw it though I wish I could have) of my car. The requested theme will probably draw out lots of t-bucket stuff.

    I'll see if I can find time to do a tribute but for now I have a few sketches and photos from the Autumn Classic a few weeks back. There's always a great atmosphere when the hotrodders visit, the wall of death is great too and the whole thing gets mixed in with some steamers, cooper 500's, hillclimb specials and vintage Bugattis. I was lucky enough to get a ride in a fantastic 1932 model B - and also a blast around the countryside in a GP Bugatti - fantastic. Hope you like the work. Lots more photos in the album...

    Didn't know Norm, and I have only seen some of his work on this forum, but he sounded like a great guy, and well-liked here. RIP in car-art heaven, Norm! Here's some more Halloweenies:
